About file uploading and downloading

The FileReference class lets you add the ability to upload and download files between a client and server. Your users can upload or download files between their computer and a server. Users are prompted to select a file to upload or a location for download in a dialog box (such as the Open dialog box on the Windows operating system).

Each FileReference object that you create with ActionScript refers to a single file on the user’s hard disk. The object has properties that contain information about the file’s size, type, name, creation date, and modification date. On the Macintosh, there is also a property for the file’s creator type.
